One if the reasons I didn't get a Helix was the previous strategy on Line 6 products. Clearly, the Helix is an absolute killer device but I was slightly burned by how quickly they changed their products and the 'Now with even more absolute authentic valve emulation'. On the flip side, Kemper amps came out in 2011 which is practically ancient and yet they cost more than before. I do wonder if a Kemper 2 is around the corner but I get the distinct impression that Kemper have no intention on bringing out device after device in order to stay at the forefront of their genre for decades to come. Given the previous 'Kemper' product was the Virus synth, I reckon the Kemper 2 will be a motorbike.
